After spending three years as a lead vocalist in a funk-rock band, Julie Elody is excited to find her sound as a solo artist, working with several renowned producers. Julie releases her first solo track “Sirens” today. The indie-electro track is accompanied by Julie’s captivating voice and a subtle yet soothing sound of sirens in the background.
“I don’t like to write about frivolous things, and “Sirens” is no exception,” Julie explains of her new track. “It is about the all-too-often times that we ignore problems in our lives instead of dealing with them head-on, and all of the ways that this effects us.”

With soulful vocals and meaningful lyrics, Julie promises to use her voice to make a statement. Julie has been the featured vocalist on a few electro-pop tracks, all which gained high success on both Soundcloud and Spotify. She embodies the style of popular music without singing about meaningless partying and how much she wants to be your baby. Conversely, Julie writes songs about issues that are important to her. In her song, “Mountain Lions”, she talks about her struggle with anxiety. “Pennies” is about how the over-commodified society we live in can be detrimental.
Julie has a degree from Loyola University New Orleans in music industry studies, and it was there that she found her passion for songwriting and performing. In the time between her childhood in New Hampshire and the eclectic home she’s found in New Orleans, she’s had the opportunity to travel all over the world. A large passion for Julie is bringing the cultures she has found most compelling with her everywhere she goes.
